Bluefin is pleased to announce the acquisition of Chelmsford-based broker R G Ford Insurance Brokers Limited (“R G Ford”) for an undisclosed sum.
Originally formed in 1964, R G Ford is a highly regarded business offering insurance solutions across commercial and personal lines. The founders and all staff are being retained and will move into Bluefin’s Chelmsford office.
Giles Ford, Managing Director of R G Ford Insurance Brokers, said: “Bluefin is a well respected broker in the market and this is an exciting opportunity for our business, staff and clients. Being part of Bluefin provides access to a strong support network and we look forward to joining the team in Chelmsford and working with them to develop the business further.”
Mike Bruce, Chief Executive officer of Bluefin, commented: “R G Ford has a fantastic and long standing reputation for its private client and commercial business. Its proximity to our existing Chelmsford office and its split of commercial and personal lines makes R G Ford an ideal fit for Bluefin and is very much in line with our strategy of acquiring top performing, specialist businesses.”
